The impetus for this publication came from our appreciation for the many native plants we see while on hikes and excursions around our region and that grow in our yards and those of other gardeners. These tough, well-adapted plants ask for very little other than an understanding of their preferred growing conditions, which take little effort to provide. They often require less water and don't need the soil amendments that so many fussier plants demand. In return, they provide a beauty in the garden that can be subtle and supportive or flashy and dramatic, depending on the species. These sometimes under-appreciated garden gems could play a much larger role in gardeners' yards, and the descriptions and pictures provided here are intended to entice readers to give them a try.
